Philip Thomas and Apartment House premiere Christian Wolff’s new work for piano and ensemble as part of Performing Indeterminacy: An International Conference in Leeds on 1 July, and at St John at Hackney on 6 July.
The concert programme couples Resistance with John Cage’s seminal work, Concert for Piano and Orchestra, comprising 63 pages to be played, in whole or in part, in any sequence.
The conference’s aim is to foster dialogue and debate of performing indeterminate music and features paper contributions, lectures and concerts. A roundtable discussion about performing Cage’s music with Sam Belinfante, Jeremy Millar and Laura Kuhn of the John Cage Trust, chaired by Mark Iddon, will take place prior to the concert on 1 July.
It will be a weekend of premieres for Wolff, with
Banjo Player receiving its first performance with Seth Josel on 30 June in London as part of the Music We’d Like to Hear concert series.
